Rondo garnered 55 points while finishing behind Orlando's Dwight Howard(576 points), Atlanta's Josh Smith(136), Charlotte's Gerald Wallace(113), and Cleveland's LeBron James(61).

Rondo, who led the NBA in steals per game, placed on 25 of 122 ballots cast by sportswriters and broadcasters across the league and earned 1 first-place vote, 13 second-place votes, and 11 third-place votes.

Celtics center Kendrick Perkinsearned a single third-place vote, helping him finish among a pack eight that brought up the rear of the results list.

Dwight Howard is no surprise.  But some people didn't even have him on their ballots, which is insane.

Congrats Rajon.

    How could someone have Rondo ahead of Howard? As much as I lover Rondo, there is NO way anyone except Howard is the DPOY this year. With him, Orlando is among the top defenses in the league. Without him, they are average at best.
    That said, congrats to Rondo for finishing fifth!
